How are you all doing? Now that I’m on maternity leave I have a bit more time to blog 🙂 Today I wanted to share my everyday make up products
First I would normally use a toner which is not featured above to clean my face and get all that last dirt off my face. Then I would use my Sk2 lotion to pat into my skin followed by Olay complete for sensitive skin moisturing lotion. I have been using this one for years and really love how it absorbs into the skin and doesn’t feel oily or leave my skin dry.
My Go-to foundation at the moment is Max factor miracle match blur and nourish foundation in medium followed by my Maybelline age rewind concealer in medium. I love this concealer and have repurchased this product many times as I can’t find anything else that does the job of hiding undereye bags and other imperfections.
I also use a lip balm and this one is from Japan. For my eyebrows I didn’t used to fill them in but eyebrows definitely define a face so I have been using this Elf duo one and the cream one actually does a good job and blends into my brows nicely but I think I will have to try some other ones to see what else is out there.
For my eyes I use this Wet n Wild palette in Petal pusher – ever since I bought it in the states it has been my go to look the ones that have hit pan you can see are my go to colors one is a mauve kind of color and then I smoke it out with the darker purple. I use the kiss me eyeliner from Japan – they have the best eyeliners – they are waterproof and they glide on nicely and then I finish with curling my eyes with the Heroine masacara that is also waterproof. I have been using both of these products for years and if anyone goes back to Japan I try and get them to repurchase them for me 🙂
So that’s about it – sometimes I will whack some blush on but I hardly contour or highlight my face. Especially with my pregnancy coming to an end I tend to stay indoors for most of my week and only put on makeup when I’m heading out.
Hope you are all having a great week. Let me know any holy grail products I should try 🙂
So my family finally came back from Malaysia and Singapore 🙂 I was very excited to see them again and not to mention the presents too 🙂
I did have a list of items that I wanted but I also got some unexpected things 🙂
Nail polish – Silver glittery and White
My Beauty diaries face masks in apple flavour 🙂

Kiss me mascara – I love Japanese mascaras they just work well for my lashes
Kiss me mascara
Lip Ice – they are the best for moisturising lips and they come in great fruit flavours 🙂
At our drugstore in Australia – Priceline there was a 40% sale on all cosmetics. There was a tonne of people there and I managed to pick up this Essence eyeliner for about $2.50 and this Maybelline Babylips in Berry for $2.40.
Maybelline baby lips
The color payoff for the Berry lips is quite good. It’s like a tinted color balm for the lips and the Essence eyeliner is surprisingly quite good as well.
Been hunting around for a leather jacket especially since the weather is starting to cool down. I think it will be a versatile piece. So tried this one on.
The lining is pretty cool with a paisley like pattern.
Just received this in my email! I can finally try Revlon lip butters! Though not sure how much this is going to cost me!
Lastly tried this polka dot dress – yes I’m still obsessed with polka dots! 🙂
Hope you all have a happy weekend! Anyone tried the lip butters and which do you recommend?
I will be reviewing 3 different mascaras and show my favourite mascara.
– Rimmel 123 adjustable mascara
I liked the fact it had 3 different adjustable settings. By twisting the container you can different amounts of mascara in one hit. My favourite setting was number 3 because it gave the most product. I didn’t like the fact that it wasn’t waterproof and tended to smudge by mid or late afternoon of wearing it. The brush applicator is also a bit stiff and the wand a bit short.
– Maybelline the falsies volum’ express black drama
It does give really long lashes with lots of volume as well. It held my curl for a long time but at the end of the day it smudged a little as well. I like the wand and brush applicator as it went on quite well with not so many clumps.
– Kiss Me Volume and Curl Mascara
This is my all time favourite holy grail mascara. It really works for me. It holds curl really well – probably the fact that it is waterproof. I think Japanese people make really good cosmetics that work for asian eyes. This gives me really long lashes and volume and it lasts the whole day without smudging and I love the shape of the wand and brush applicator. Probably the only problem is that it is hard to find in western countries or really overpriced as I bought mine from Asia when I was there.
What is your favourite mascara? I’m always looking for new ones to try 🙂
